March is Colon Cancer Awareness Month . . . and Friday (March 3) is national “Dress in Blue Day” to encourage everyone 50 and older to get screened for colon cancer.
Wear royal blue on Friday! When people ask why, tell them:
- Colon cancer is the #2 cause of cancer death.
- A simple test saves lives.
- Colonoscopy should be part of every adult’s health screenings.
Are you due for your screening? Make your appointment with the Surgery Center: 507-646-1201
Dana Graham was expecting hip pain. What surprised him was how easy it was to fix.
Joint problems run in his family, and his hip had been bothering him for some time. An MRI at Northfield Hospital showed bones rubbing against each other. So his orthopedic surgeon, Dr. Clinton Muench, gave Dana a cortisone shot in the hip while Dana was in for surgery to repair a meniscus tear in his knee.
Congratulations to the staff of the Long Term Care Center for providing great care – and earning national recognition for it!
